    "biz card" share

    Advertisement



    I would love a way to "beam" my contact info, pin, etc to another BB user, just like the nokia beam contact or palm via IR. Maybe Bluetooth? Maybe through BB messenger?

    That would be wicked! I'm gonna start using my blackberry as my main phone and will have to update my contacts manually which sucks! If anyone knows how to do it, thatd be cool!

    That would be very nice, as most would agree. Unfortunately, we don't have that option yet.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~im always under the impression that RIM being biz/security conscious does not want that possibility to happen.I know in the past when I had the Palm I could easily IR another Palm, yeah! I miss that possibility too!!

    Thats a nice feature I totally forgot about.

    A really nice app would be to "beam" a card with an image.

    Yes the original Palm OS "beaming" feature would be great. There is a way you can still send your vCard from the BB. Open the address book, scroll to your name, click scroll wheel, and your choices are to "Send As Attachment" or "Send to Messenger Contact".

    Of course it would be great if there was a menu item that said "Send via Bluetooth" but sadly there isn't.

    So right now, its not as easy as the old infra red method, but if you know the persons email address, you could send the vCard that way.

    Um maybe I'm missing something, but with the pearl, goto options, then Bluetooth. Select menu, and transfer address book. Keep in mind, you have to pair the devices. But I'm pretty sure this can be done. I can't, as my BES doesn't support it.

    Yea, but thats exactly why I made the suggestion - since its hard to get someone's weird *** email while bumping around Boston's subway, the T.
